Book description:

This is a textbook introducing the syntactic theory of
Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) to people familiar with derivational
theories such as Government/Binding theory and the Minimalist
Program. It introduces the conceptual underpinning of the theory and
its formal mechanisms, and develops a portion of a grammar of
English. At every step along the way, the LFG approach is contrasted
with the GB/MP approach in order to motivate LFG. Constructions
covered include passive, dative, unaccusatives, wh movement, control
and raising constructions, and anaphora.

The emphasis throughout is on LFG as an alternative theory of syntax
within the general framework of generative grammar. It is argued that
LFG meets the goals of generative linguistics better than GB/MP. It
provides a typologically and computationally more realistic model of
Universal Grammar.
